Official: Fazio returns to Sevilla

Sevilla have completed the signing of Tottenham Hotspur defender Federico Fazio on loan until the end of the season.

The Argentine had been in talks with Los Nervionenses for some time, but Spurs’ official Twitter account has now confirmed the move, although there is no purchase option in the arrangement.

Fazio spent seven years with Sevilla before joining Tottenham in the summer of 2014, but Toby Alderweireld’s arrival from Atletico Madrid last summer rendered him surplus to requirements.

Gael Kakuta is also expected to leave Sevilla before the end of the day, while Denis Cheryshev is understood to be on the verge of joining from Real Madrid.
